More Than Meets the Eye: An Introduction to Autism Spectrum Disorders

A new webinar with Dr. Christen Szymanski
Thursday, April 18, 2013
3 to 4 p.m. EST
In this second webinar on deaf and hard of hearing students with autism, Dr. Christen Szymanski will explain the early warning signs of autism that may present in young deaf or hard of hearing children. She will also discuss how some of the current characteristics, early indicators, and tools for diagnosing autism in hearing children may be difficult to use with deaf or hard of hearing children or may not be useful at all. Autism and Autism Spectrum Disorders are diagnoses that consist of lifelong challenges in communication, socialization, and behavior for both the children who are given the diagnoses and their families. Children who receive early and accurate diagnoses often receive earlier interventions—supports, services, and treatment—that can lead to greater benefits later in life.
